Rebecca's Journey

I have been on diets before...this time I'm on this health and fitness journey for the long haul. My goals are to lose weight, too. I hope to shed 35 pounds and see whether that weight loss makes it possible for me to take up jogging again.

Update as of 6/19/14: For the past two years I've been idling between 150 and 155+ pounds, still jogging...ran the Portland Marathon in 2013 in 5 hours 47 minutes . This past running season I've been battling calf injuries...but I ran the ...
I have been on diets before...this time I'm on this health and fitness journey for the long haul. My goals are to lose weight, too. I hope to shed 35 pounds and see whether that weight loss makes it possible for me to take up jogging again.

Update as of 6/19/14: For the past two years I've been idling between 150 and 155+ pounds, still jogging...ran the Portland Marathon in 2013 in 5 hours 47 minutes . This past running season I've been battling calf injuries...but I ran the Hippie Chick Half Marathon in May in 2:30+.

My goal this year: iget healthy, run half marathons and to lose the weight I've put back on. I've been on South Beach Gluten Free Phase I since June 5 and have lost 3.5 pounds over the past two weeks.

Update as of 10/9/11: Finished Portland Marathon in 5 hours 36 minutes. Weigh 142. Need to work back to goal!

Sept 2011: Finished Newport half marathon in 2:25

7/5/11: Weighing about 5.5 pounds over my goal weight of 135...but have been traveling a lot. Now hope to focus on fitness and getting back to goal over the next two months.

8/13/11 Tualatin 5k Crawfish Crawl in 30:17

6/11/11 Finished the Helvetia Half Marathon in 2:18:15

11/25/10 Finished the GiveNGobble 10k in Sherwood in 1 hour 2 minutes and 50 odd seconds (less about 20 seconds to cross over the start line). Yay me!

9/11/10 I jogged for 10.62 miles in 113 minutes...on my mother's birthday. She would've been 91 this year.

9/6/10 Yesterday I jogged for 80 minutes (around 7.3 miles, I think). I have jogged 9 miles at one time a few weeks ago. My goal is to jog 10 miles w/o stopping before the season for running outside is over. We'll see. I am up to running 4 or 5 times a week when I can.

7/27/10 Weighed in at 139.8 today! My BMI is now officially in the "normal" range. Longest run so far this summer: 68 minutes on Sunday.

7/17/10 I jogged for 56 minutes today. I'm getting much better at jogging longer distances. Most times I jog I at least do the 45 minute loop through town.

6/28/2010 I am making progress adding distance, time and speed to my runs. My longest run has been for 55 minutes..about 5 miles including some hill climbing. I've done that route 3 times. I regularly go on a 4 mile circuit through town, and when I am feeling tired or do other exercise in the day I have a 30 minute loop I do. I am now running 3-5 times a week.

5/24/2010 I ran (er, jogged) in the 5k Rum Run Race yesterday with my daughter. I finished in 31:30, a 10:05 pace. First in my age group! Of course, there were only 4 in my age group. But still...I am enjoying being first.

5/18/10 update. I am still jogging. But I need to watch it or my knees feel twinges. I have run up to 45 minutes at a time (twice this week) and am feeling it. But I am proud of my accomplishments, too.

4/20/10 update. I have been able to jog, but I am trying to balance jogging with studio cycling, walking, and gardening. So far, the gardening is winning this week. My knees feel healthy. Yay!

Fitness Minutes: 80,565

My Goals:
To find my way back to healthy eating, improve my fitness and lose weight that's crept on the past few years. I also need to find a way to keep that weight off!

My Program:
Execrcise: When I am not traveling I try to make it to three studio cycling classes per week. I also like to take walks, garden and jog 3 times a week.
Eating: I will try to limit my portions and get back to a south beach style carb limiting diet.
Update as of 4/9/2010:
Since I've been home lately, I am exercising about 6 times a week. Studio cycling maybe 3-5 times a week and I've started jogging at least 3 times a week.

Still losing weight slowly...I am eating maybe 1500-1600 calories a day...sometimes more, sometimes less.

Thanks for commenting on my race report. We really enjoyed our trip to Newport. It's a great community. I think I'll run that race again.

Did the Hippie Chick quarter... And have blisters for that too!!! I am planning on the Vancouver Half in a few weeks but given my SLUGGGGGGGISH 10K on Sunday, my hunch is that I will be walking at least half of the half!

When is your next one?

Thank you for your support on my page - great advice which I'm going to try. I'm inspired by your running and hope to improve my fitness as well - it's hard when your carrying extra weight but I know I need to do it
